A STYLIST shared a major tip for when picking out an outfit, and it goes against what most people might assume.
Mac shared an Instagram Reel in which she first wore a plain grey three-quarter-sleeve sweater and black leggings.
Looking drab and particularly unexcited in the form-fitting outfit, she revealed an important thing to ignore when dressing up.
“Why ‘slimming’ styles should never be a factor in getting dressed,” she wrote, deeming her current look to be slimming yet unstylish.
Then the stylist transitioned into an outfit that was “not slimming.”
Mac wore a green chunky cable-knit sweater tucked into shiny floral-print lounge pants. She looked much happier in this colorful, patterned, and loose-fitting outfit.
Then Mac showed another “slimming” outfit, which consisted of a black straight-cut leather blazer over a black crop top and off-black straight-leg jeans.
While this look wasn’t as boring as the first one, Mac didn’t look very comfortable in it.

Mac swapped the blazer for a boxy cropped denim jacket. She also changed into a pair of high-waisted jeans that had wider-cut legs.
For her last two looks, she first wore a boring black sleeveless sweater tucked into straight-cut brown trousers.
The pieces were unshapely and gave the effect that Mac had a very straight body shape since there was no cinching or definition.
Then Mac changed into her final stylish non-slimming outfit. She wore a green striped short-sleeve shirt tucked into lime green wide-leg trousers. The wide cut made Mac look more shapely.
“Choosing an outfit just because it’s ‘slimming’ is never the right way to build style!!” she doubled-down on her fashion advice.
Many people similarly preferred Mac’s non-slimming outfits, and one person pointed out how Mac actually looked slimmer in the non-slimming ones.
“All clothes that are flattering are all slimming! They look so dull most of the time plus you can only wear dark colors!” they wrote.
“You look so much happier in the brighter ones!!!” another person acknowledged.
Mac’s followers were overall appreciative of her tip, writing: “This is an important revelation,” and: “The real inspo I needed today.”
